In addition, these services have the safeguard measures of our infrastructure monitoring services built in.

DDoS attacks remain one of the oldest threats to cyber security. Today, DDoS mitigation is harder than ever with attackers focusing on the application layer rather than the traditional transport and network layers. Layer 3 Communications combats these attacks by directly scrubbing and rerouting the clean traffic back to our customers. Layer 3 uses industry leading hardware and software to acheive these goals. DDoS attacks are also used to mask other forms of data breaches. Layer 3's advanced security services can detect breaches and vunerabilities.
We include pre-configuration, staging, burn in, installation, integration, testing and verification of datacenter elements as an option for our datacenter implementation processes. Your datacenter can be built in a controlled environment prior to physical installation. This ensures a quick launch to your datacenter practice. In addition, we provide post-implementation support as needed.
